Airport

Continuity mistake: Burt Lancaster is sitting in his car at the end, and he asks the tower if he can listen to the radio traffic for the incoming plane that's landing. The tower replies "Sure, it's on frequency 117.1". Burt then tunes the dial on his receiver to 171, not 117. 170 is blatantly written under the dial in bold type.

Continuity mistake: When arguing about the expansion of the airport with Ackerman, Mel steps behind a display model of the airport layout. We see him standing in one position for several seconds, but in the next shot his arms are positioned completely differently, and he is standing in a slightly different spot. (00:45:15)

Continuity mistake: When the bombed plane lands, the pilot pulls the throttle all the way back and is seen turning something off, but a few seconds later, his hand is again on the throttle, which is positioned halfway, as it used to be.
